The main goal of this paper is to investigate the syntactic properties of verbal elements that function as the subject or object in a clause, and the discussion is based on Zhu Dexi's (1982) idea of referential and asserting properties of verbal elements. It is explained that Zhu is correct in saying that when verbal elements function as the subject or object, they do not have the same syntactic status. It is also argued that reference and assertion do not contrast at the same level of grammatical representation and therefore are not the proper tools to differentiate verbal elements in the same structural position. It is suggested that verb nominalization is the appropriate way to describe a verb in the head position of a nominal phrase while the nominalization of verb phrase is the appropriate way to describe a verb phrase in the subject or the object position.
